Something a bit more on the "pop" side this time. Hey, ya gotta change it up once in a while...
One of those songs about "puttin' up a good front".


A Face In The Crowd



Here are the RealTracks:

RealTracks in song: 1174:Bass, Electric, PopCalypso Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 633:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopAmericanMuted Ev 120 (A:sync)
RealTracks in song: 1852:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopUpliftArp Ev 120
RealTracks in song: 1260:Guitar, Electric, Soloist PopShining Ev 120
RealTracks in song: 587:Sax, Tenor, 2-Beat Rock Ev 110
RealDrums in Song: NashvilleEven8^1-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

I added a couple of acoustic tracks and the vocal.
The BIABettes added the harmonies.

As always, comments encouraged...

Pretty solid tune IMO Floyd. The lyrics are really well focused and the chorus has a nice melodic lift. I like it and can't really think of much to say in critique. I like the mix too.

Peace,

Ian

Well up to your usual high standard, Floyd.

Pop, yes, but with a definite country influence?

Particularly liked the chorus - it's always a good sign when you find yourself singing it long after the track's finished!

Hey Floyd,

Another fine job! I like the pop/country feel this has going for it. I also think the sax is working well. The lead guitar track is cool too, but right when it comes in for the ending/outro (on the C#m) I'm hearing a couple of bad (or at least questionable) notes that (to me) are sticking out like a sore thumb. I think I'd regenerate that guitar section and see if you can't get him to make a little better choice.
It's great other than that.

Greg

Hi Floyd
you've been busy too!
Yeah - a fine "pop" song". Its one of those wonderful '4 chord trick' songs but with your writing skills and the phrasing, it lifts out of what might be ordinary up to a much higher level. With Brent guitar in there it kinda reminded me of The Carpenters "Mr Postman".
I can hear what Greg means. There are features like that in most, if not all of mine and I guess I could re-gen all day to get just the right "take" but life's too short AND the sun is shining. (well - today it is anyway).
Top Class, Floyd.
cheers
ian

Hi Floyd,

outstanding lyrics, beautiful voice and the
beloved Biabettes.
That poppy coating suits you well.
Enjoyed listening as always.
That sax fits in well, but Greg is right with the guitar.
Brent is a little tricky sometimes.

Hi Floyd,

This is really excellent! But I would not expect any less from you! As usual, you have come up with some really good lyrics, well expressed in your singing. And you can call it pop if you want to, but I'll still say it's got a good country feel to it.

I agree about the guitar, but it's not a deal killer.

Very nice.

Steve

Hi,
Nice feel to this.
I like the pacing of the vocal. The mix is good. Do I hear the guitar off notes. Well, sort of, but I think it doesn't detract that much from the overall song.

Great work.

Pop? It seems like all the genres have become such big tents that I'm about at the point of taking a binary approach, i.e., it's good or bad music. And this tune certainly falls in the good camp. I dunno if you have a file cabinet with a zillion good songs or if you crank them out when needed but, whatever, the output is incredibly impressive. The vocals, the lyrics, the melody, the mix and the effects all work very well for us and sound fine on my studio monitors. The tenor sax is a nice touch and fits right in. I experimented around with that RealTrack on a "cover song" and it is quite expressive. Your variant (generation) is perfect for the song.

Still has a country edge to me and that's a good thing. Well crafted.

Hey Floyd that is another excellent one. You never seem to surprise me. I love it keep it up. I was just offered my radio job back at the radio station that I used to work at. Would it be alright to play your song's on the radio? The radio station has gone national. I get to play any music that I want to. As long as it has a copyright. I would also ask you are you affiliated with any of the performing rights organizations? The reason that I ask this, is because if I play your music you would get paid performance rights for playing it on the air. Let me know! You can email me at rapidgeon9@bmi.net hope to hear from you soon.

Before I get to anything else....

I have regened the guitar solo/outro and replaced the song. If anyone who "mentioned to bad notes" listens again... I would appreciate knowing if I "got it fixed"...

Ian F - thanks for the listen. and, again, welcome to the forum.

ROG - appreciate the thoughts. thanks.

Greg - thanks for bringing that to my attention. I've re-done that part of the solo. It actually might have been a couple of notes from one of the rhythm guitar tracks. I noticed them when I was re-doing the solo - and turned that track off at that point. If you happen by again, let me know if it's fixed...

Guenter - Just noticed... thanks for the re-listen. I'm pretty sure it was actually coming from the rhythm guitar track... but as long as it's fixed, we'll let whoever it was slide just this once....
